If you love color then you might want to start collecting Stick Cut Sponge and Spatter Ware. When grouped together the array of colors will make you feel joyful and happy. This plate might be a nice starter piece. The Straw Flower, stick sponge garland encircles the center in bright red and blue flowers with yellow centers. Green leaves tie them together and a band of red encircles the rim edge. There are areas of glaze slip on the rim edge occurring during manufacture. The plate measures 8 ¾ inches in diameter. It is in very used age-related condition where shiny glaze in center has been dulled by utensil marks; rim also has smaller utensils marks. The plate carries an English hallmark on the back with impressed number 9 or 6 and other mark. Although the plate is not in the greatest of condition, it still remains worthy of display. It is good looking and when displayed within other sponge and stick ware pieces will blend right in to the collection of color and designs. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
